Check for other applications with 'Window on top' priority.  I believe some messaging apps have been known to do so, even if a window does not appear (Skype, etc.).

Ok, so I discovered what the culprit was, I am going to copy/paste from my Reddit post on the same issue.

EDIT: Ok, so anyone still interested in this post, I found a solution that works. I noticed after fighting with settings and all that, that I had a notification in my sidebar on windows. Now this didn't give me any indicators at all that there was a notification there, I actually stumbled upon it on accident. It said something along the lines of gw2-64.exe has been blocked from accessing Graphics Processor. No indication of which program was doing this. I fiddled around and discovered that my Windows Defender Firewall was the culprit (even though I had it turned off). I created an exception for that .exe file, and I have not had the issue come up again.
